A teenager grabbed a 16-year-old girl by her waist, showed her a handgun and told her to come with him, police said. She escaped without injury.
The alleged attempted kidnapping happened near the intersection of Beverly and Roswell streets, in Emerald Hills, at 7:45 p.m. Friday, said Officer David Stafford.
"The victim ran from the suspect and ran home where she called police," Stafford said.
The suspect was described as 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighed 200 pounds.
